Instructions for “staying connected with Grandkids” use.

FOR LONG-DISTANCE GRANDPARENTS:  For younger children, parents will need to be involved.  Older children can probably handle this alone.  To be sure they are willing to help, you may want to check with the parents before you send this to the grandkids.  Of course, these instructions can be altered based on your unique circumstances.

  2. Write a letter to your Grandkids and explain the game and how to play.
  3. Mail it off to your Grandkids in a secret envelope.  You can draw on it, make a happy face or just say “Look Inside for Fun”.
  4. Everyone will need a pencil, marker or crayon.  Bingo markers would work for this!
  5. Make sure someone has a camera.
  6. Have them go outside to visit a neighborhood park, a lake, a river, or just go for a walk.  Just go outside.
  7. Tell them to observe.
  8. When they find an item on the list, have them take a photo, text it to you and mark it off their list.
  9. You can mark it off your list.
  10. When they have found all the things or time is up, get together on FaceTime and talk about the day.  Have them text a picture of their completed form to you.
  11. If you want to, you could make a photo book of their finds and scorecard to give them.  Or add a few of them in the “yearbook” you might decide to make them for Christmas.  🙂
